Draft Threat Hangs Over Graduating New Mexico Boys, Cuts Job Chances By Tll'e Associated Prrss Some 20,000 high school members of the class of '51 w i l l ' b e graduated this week in New -Mexico. Largest group of seniors is at Albuquerque, where 883 .arc being graduated by five high schools. Clauses range down to those the Kize of Causey High school in Roosevelt county, graduating five. In all the senior classes, the boys have a ready made career waiting for them, unless they can get college deferments. And this has caused a public relations man at one of the state's higher etlucu- ·lion Institutions to m a k e - a n off- cuff forecast of the largest freshman enrollments in years. "FlRiire It Out" "Figure 'it out," he said. "You give those kids the choice of going to college or going to 'the army and what do you suppose most of them will do?" Moat high school seniors arc 18 at commencement. That gives them a year, at present, before they reach draft age. Pending legislation in congress may lower the age to 1S!» and set up a 'companion universal military training law. Tests for college deferment also wil' play an Important role in determining who goes to the army, who goes to school. Their draft status will play an important part in the graduates getting Jous, too. Many firms won't hlie young men apt to be Irafted. Can't Afford As one personnel director put it, 'We can't afford to train fellows or jobs, then have them go to the army in ,a few months." All this probably won't.aiter the senior girls' lot considerably, although drafting of their male classmates undoubtedly w o u l d leave a few extra jobs open for them. Commencement lor one senior girl,' however, will be even more special than ordinary. Gov. Edwin L. Mechem, commencement speak er at Helen High school, will present Elvia Tabet an engraved fountain pen. The reason: She hasn't missed a single day of school since she started 12 years ago. Nesilla Park Graduation Speaker Asks Return To Forefathers' Values In Australia, the hald eagle is said to follow white men who an hunting, expecting to feed on the offal from the kill; but it will not follow black hunters, because they use the offal from their kills. Kftj'-ciglit graduating student: of Mesilla Park's Junior higl school this morning heard a ual to return to the high moral value: of their forefathers. Addressing the graduates, George Berthelon, manager of the Now Mexico Employment service La.- Graces office, said "We must return to those" high moral values if we are to. continue to preserve the heritage that is our way of life." . . . "Each generation," Mr. Berihcl- on said, "has Ib accomplish democracy over again for Itself if it IB to remain a .dynamic force in the life of the nation." The speaker asked graduates to have moral courage. "Do not he afraid to he honest," he said, "don't I be afraid to have moral and spirit- convictions. 'And above all. don't ie afraid to be an American. Put your hand in t h e ' h a n d of Ood as did your forefathers before you." Graduates received diplomas from Supt. IIRskel : B. Smith. Miss Jessie Cleveland, school principal, introduced the speaker. The invocation/was given by Rev. John H. Parrott. Pliny, Roman, wrtfr (23 to 79 f A D ) describes tooth powders made' from ashes of such things , as dog teeth, deer antlers, hare or mouse vhcads and pastern bones 1 from livestock.
